cdrskin is a command-line interface (CLI) recording tool for all recordable variants of CD, DVD, and Blu-ray media. It is a part of the Libburnia project.
Libburnia is the name of a project to develop various pieces of disk recording software.
- cdrskin is the end-user application of libburnia. It is CLI-only and its syntax is mostly identical to cdrecord to act as a drop-in replacement for existing front-ends.
- libburn is the underlying programming library. It is used by cdrskin and 3rd party disk recording applications can also use this library directly.
- libisofs is the library to create or modify ISO 9660 disk images.
- libisoburn is an add-on to libburn and libisofs which coordinates both and also allows to grow ISO 9660 filesystem images on multi-session and overwriteable media.
- xorriso is a CLI application that creates, loads, manipulates and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions.
- The underlying libburn library is used directly as sole recording back-end for Xfce’s graphical Xfburn application which is included in the default installation of Xubuntu since version 10.10.
- GNOME's default disk recording application, Brasero, can use libburn directly without relying on cdrecord compatibility of cdrskin.
- FlBurn is a FLTK application that uses libburn directly.
- cdrskin is similar to cdrecord and wodim, and can be used in place of the aforementioned tool in GUI front-ends such as K3b.
The first public release, 0.1.0, was released in January 2006.
- Blanking of CD-RW and DVD-RW media.
- Burning of data or audio tracks to CD, either in versatile Track-at-Once mode (TAO) or in Session-at-Once mode for seamless tracks.
- Multi-session on CD (follow-up sessions in TAO only) or on DVD-R[W] (in Incremental mode) or on DVD+R.
